from moscow twenty four hours a day this is. he is the most lead opposition in kuwait is boycotting saturday's parliamentary ballot in a bitter standoff with the country's unelected leaders the u.s. backed monarchy is accused of amending the voting rules to influence the outcome of the poll. in the gulf state with more. uncertainty is one way to describe the mood here in way today as the highly controversial parliamentary elections kick off now the opposition has refused to back down from a boycott of the voting in protest of what it sees as a move towards authoritarianism opposition activists say that this is an attempt to produce a more compliant parliament that will allow the government to pass laws without appropriate oversight from the legislature thousands a few leaders have taken to the streets in a largely peaceful protest in order to express their frustration with what they see . some version of the cold war there's also concerns about
a potential clampdown on dissent as many activists have spoken out both against the emir and the political situation here have been jailed now we got a chance to speak to some of the protesters and here's a look at what they have to say i have a problem is that the government doesn't need neither the constitution nor democracy and they always start to talk about dialogue whenever they need a temporary alternative but in practice they are defying democracy the main problem is that since one thousand nine hundred seventy six the development of kuwait has stopped because the government started thinking of how to change the constitution and get rid of it the growth of the country has stopped and the government is unable to change the constitution or to continue with the development process as a result the situation has got to where it is now that spoke the opposition hope that my point that should result in a lower voter turnout which could in theory radically undermine the actual outcome of the elections and potentially nice and the dissolution of the most recent
parliament we also spoke to opposition activists to say that they are going to be stationing their own observers at each of the polling stations in order to do an independent count of the voter turnout to the world which country has seen recently violent street battles between opposition groups and security forces which have used steer a gas stun grenades as well as rubber bullets in order to disperse. the previous gatherings now western countries are of course. as well as the unrest here in kuwait of course as an opec member any sort of unrest on the streets is bound to have some sort of impact on oil prices as well as the pentagon's plans to use the oil rich nation as a hub for its get ground forces in order to build up a countering force to the perceived threats by iran is home to three u.s. military bases a long that's the cylinder. the ball of living withdrawal from afghanistan.
you see captain of r t two eight well meanwhile in egypt thousands of businesses are rallying in support of the president while the opposition continues to demonstrate against him mohamed mursi in this the spark public fury off the granting himself supreme power has now the draft constitution his political allies approved has also come on the far east tom barton reports now from cairo. protesters have been camped out in town for a square since last week since egyptian president mohamed morsi issue to decree granting himself sweeping new powers that kicks off a wave of protests by the more liberal sections of egyptian society not just here in cairo but in cities across the country some of those spilling over into violent protests we're seeing take gas thrown and stone exchanges between the protesters and police a number of protesters have died hundreds more have been wounded across the country in those protests the clearness of it the roots of it
a constitutional crisis here people in the basij when they had their revolution nearly two years ago to overthrow of hosni mubarak last week after this declaration of how much more see the current president backed by the muslim brotherhood said that the reason for that was to try and get a new constitution last in a process that dragged out for a long time for egypt however the constituent assembly that drafted that is dominated by the muslim brotherhood many other representatives of more liberal representatives coptic christians and other groups that have withdrawn from that assembly in protest so there is the fear that that new constitution which has just recently been draft is too islamist is to religiously conservative doesn't make enough provisions to protect minorities in a gyptian society mohamed morsi for his part ses he went to compromise he wants to
protect the revolution and today it is the chance of his supporters he is supported by large sections of the egyptian population and he did win the presidential election these protests will continue here in tahrir square as well and we have this shows that the constitutional crisis and the battle to try and get egypt's revolution on the right track. on a track that egyptians can agree on is far from over. for some reaction now from cairo based political sociologist side subject thanks for joining us arundhati yet now at the mercy supporters have taken to the streets of egypt on mass as we see well this lead to a direct confrontation with the opposition do you think. well as long as the police but vents. crowds. meeting each other all. prevent the islamists coming formed government rates if you look at the picture from the people coming from are supporting dr morsi that the solution is the countryside
and the opposition is an urban areas areas are looking into her ear and whoever controls the frequent pools and and can keep it that they represent the evolution and that's why in the early against. the pool mohseni camp tried to take over the wheel or drive to unseat the those who are having a sit in strike in the wheel and i think the place and that was difficult because it would give violence now they decided to stay away from the harir and the police is preventing anybody for leaving there to work at the wheel and so as long as this happens you can have a peaceful be but of course it is deepening that the vision inside the country as you can see it is now back areas again this some parts of the countryside those people in supporting dr morsi are coming by buses from the countryside from
villages and they represent one political viewpoint it's lemmas political point of view why goes into how here are different political views they would present the model egypt egypt not the people who are the private people we could and socially who look at religion as a solution to the chronic problems if you look at what i'll do school. it's to mobilize most people to come to cairo he had to convince them that this is going to be at the restrictions in support of god in support of god's rule show me out and also to support the show me how to do all for the person the morsi and that is the only way you can remove the license prisons for people who look at the closes look at what they are coming from and what does your group what do you know about this time actually are and to simply it is a magic wand for real problems to get through to sure this of course ok then obviously as as you say many divisions here we just see some live pictures there as
well mostly of stress that his new powers a temporary that until a new constitution comes into force but how long is that likely to take. you nor any of that good to be fearful in the world to plug lean in you will tell you it is a temporary thing it is for emergency they pulled us the seams the same thing six years ago under president obama and we stayed under emergency rule for seventeen years and it was all the same excuse that the simpering it was a short period egyptian people in two thousand and twelve are not the egyptian people in two thousand and ten they have changed their is political culture that has changed their watching different satellite social networks and so you cannot live with them and they do not trust this group also the fact that the muslim brotherhood is looks to be a part of the ground by the united states and if it succeeds in egypt it would succeed and all the arab spring countries and the americans would be able to
establish an islamic a pool america we seems in the area we are policing the old horses who had fairly america in many ways it was new horses that would oppose the people inside but serve america strategic and those in the area from outside when indeed the day that i don't that wider issue an islamist influence in the region has been on the rise how will the events in egypt affect that. this is a market if the islamist seed in egypt it will be. applied to all arab spring countries if it feels it would look only in doubt sprinkled this but the whole world the political islam want it is what existed in egypt before the who should it is and it is not all egypt look the want to egypt and sure if. it succeeds to the poorest people by violence and by the silence of the americans and by the silence of important institutions look at those judges in egypt did
a very brave job by uniting against this new given me and also the egyptian people even the people who were not active in politics to be are becoming active in politics because they feel that political islam will. understand iran as a pakistan and also then. in fact if you remember the history of egypt it was united the only civil war that the egyptians have towards who was into egypt the phonic times when king demeanor like the last one and the sons of the monarchy ok i'm afraid where are we are out of time there thank you very much though for those views life from cairo pickel sociologist dr sites atika thank you. well washington has hit out at israel for authorizing three thousand new homes in the west bank and east jerusalem israel's move came a day off the u.n.
general assembly upgraded palestine to being a non member observer on the us a call the construction decision counterproductive to peace negotiations on a two state solution justinian said say than see in the west bank and east jerusalem which are occupied by israel nine hundred sixty must be returned to them and since then the number of israelis living there has been treated off a million for the past in settlement building must stop before any response then let's get more now from a human rights activist find in london thanks for joining us now the palestinians say israel's settlement decision right out of the u.n. vote is a provocation how do you see it. well i say it's very important when the u.s. calls these certain expansions illegal when they call them counterproductive we should be using the word illegal because that's very clearly what this act is a fervor free found. to be built illegally occupied palestinian territory
and this is a obstacle to peace if we're serious about a two state solution and if we're serious about moving towards that. there's no way that this third of a sudden expansion can be seen as in any way a move towards getting back on the table and moving towards the peace talks that both sides desperately need to see the to see the peace if that's the case then what future do you see for negotiations on a two state solution with this continuing open occupation of what palestinians claim is their land so i can just repeat my question yes or what future do you think there is then for two state solution with this continuing occupation. well clearly i believe that we're further away from a two state solution than we've ever been before but this isn't to say that we're any closer to any other form of peace process with the international consensus firmly behind a two state solution for me this has to be the most pragmatic path for us to move
along to try and attain the peace that both sides so desperately need inherent within the two spaces that solution has to be holding of international humanitarian law and only negotiations based around their standard of holding international humanitarian law and any peace negotiations take place so yes we're further away from a two state solution perhaps you've ever been before but only by building on the international consensus that we've got that israel and even the united states are further away from can we hope to move towards a long lasting peace so realistically then how much pressure can be put on israel or by the palestinians with them being able to theoretically go to the hague or the international criminal court at some point in the future. well i mean so having palestinians having access to international criminal courts worse put forward by my own government u.k. government an obstacle towards peace and now for me i find this utterly shocking
the possibility that my government might be saying that having access to justice having access to accountability could somehow be an obstacle to peace what i'd like the u.k. government. european union i'd like them to make clear statements about how whoever the perpetrator is and whoever the victim is there needs to be justice . international mechanisms and now in the latest upsurge in violence in gaza we've seen documented proof that israel launched indiscriminate attacks they failed to distinguish between combatant and civilian in the same way that hamas rocket attacks very clearly are aimed at civilians which is a violation of international humanitarian law in the sense that target civilian or by the indiscriminate nature of their arsenal ok ok forgive me we'll have to leave it there we're out of time human rights activist steve hind thank you for that. now
the future of america's high tech hub is in jeopardy and the minutes weisel bunnies some of the innovators who helped create its digital revolution. was so if i say he says form a nobel winners say giving the coveted prize to us was no one found that in mind. waves of corruption are rocking in russia hundreds of millions of dollars vanished from apec building projects and russia's got a nice satellite project a real estate scandal has also led to the defense minister being fired note i said fire in russia we hear a lot about corruption scandals and the reaction is usually a firing or a forced resignation and maybe that would be ok another country but russia has big
dreams in a big country that has big corruption spoiling all of those dreams a country can't survive when every infrastructural or scientific project is sucked dry from within whether the government is unwilling or unable to sternly punish these offenders is a huge topic by could tell you that if there's no real fear of punishment this will just keep going on for ever perhaps this time to put a big asterisk for high level corruption next to the moratorium on the death penalty but that's just my opinion. wealthy british stock. market why not. find out what's really happening to the global economy

sara for. in that letter they said that the twenty seven nation blocks getting this award contradicts the valley's safety ated with the pricing what they want to see happening is the one point two million dollar prize money not be awarded this year and they also said that the clearly not one of the champions of peace a consensus here amongst the signature even indeed among many many people when this award was announced this year was that really the awarding of the prize the european union not in the keeping of the spirit of the nobel peace prize the prize was awarded at a time when the e.u. is they think the biggest crisis it's faced since its creation we're seeing huge social unrest and you know what a lot of people are saying is that the european union at the moment really for a lot of people. come to represent divisions within society we've seen those divisions between the rich and the plot poor between those who employed those who
run employed you know the people that we've spoken to in these countries really feel very very let down the vision of the european union was about peace and democracy and that's certainly not what people feel that they're getting now slick committee praised the for voting after the second world war and spreading stability to former communist countries promoting peace and stability within the e.u. you know it's not all bad the e.u. does provide a huge amount of aid a nation but i think what we see happening in the e.u. in the last year really has seen very far from the idea of you know a peaceful union two thousand and nine we saw a war did see president obama many people feeling that was being awarded the peace activities he might do it some point in the feet again very much not in keeping with the will we are to have actually got some reactions of their own to this latest piece of information about it being contested and we had an m.e.p. jared bason say it's highly devious with the e.u.
even filled the rules under which the award should be given only really vary from reactions to calls see this prize being awarded to as we said movement a project that many people feel represents the total opposite to peace. but our silicon valley has long been the world's leading hub for high tech businesses reputation largely down to the influx of foreign entrepreneurs but this global symbol of enterprise could soon be in danger for the u.s. wearing ever more reluctant to welcome new talent broad what is really the question of how the story puts the silicon valley. lots of sharing helping each other even competitors will help each other some of the biggest brands on the planet and all instantly associate with america and surprisingly the majority were created by foreigners. jerry yang who was born in taipei surrogate britain whose parents came from russia when he was six or pierre
omidyar an iranian born in paris silicon valley has thrived thanks largely to immigrants people who came here with their dreams and had the drive to make them a reality they transformed this plays into an unreliable for high tech development the birthplace of global pioneers one person who helps those outsiders to get a foot in the door is german born and how it could blend struck she says the valley moves so fast that it seems skilled foreigners bring up left right and center that she average day and there is a simple reason such success is coming their way so many of the of the indians and chinese that come in the others they make these great companies and then they hire people so they are really giving work i think they're hungry they're words they want to succeed they're driven the valley's biggest rise came with the boom of immigrants in the ninety's that brought innovations in software and internet services the numbers speak for themselves just over half of the companies found it

understand that foreigners can actually bring benefits to times when america so desperately needs them but i think that's something that white america doesn't get they don't understand why. because they don't because i think that a lot of the fears are still oh they're taking our jobs away america prides itself on being a melting pot of a country where thousands flocked for a better life but u.s. immigration policy may put an end to all that i do not question artsy. rati dot com right now major media embarrassment also this news agency publishes a scientifically incorrect diagram that's proof of iran's nuclear ambitions but. also online survival manual as the mayans predicted doomsdays of power the approaching summit russian entrepreneurs aren't wasting any time cashing in on the end of the world. last u.k. officials get hot under the collar as one hundred seventy boxes containing top
